Short Bio

Dalit Naor received a B.Sc (Cum Laude) from the Technion, and M.Sc and Ph.D from the University of Californian at Davis, all in Computer Science. She then held post doctoral positions at Stanford and Tel-Aviv University until she joined IBM Research in 1996. While at IBM, Dalit developed a long career as a senior technical staff member and a senior manager in the Haifa Research Lab, and was a visiting scientist at IBM Almaden in CA during 1999-2001. In February 2021 she joined as the Dean for the School of Computer Science.  Dalit is an expert in Cloud platforms and Storage systems, with an extensive industrial research experience.
